The mailbox at CollageClearinghouse is chock full of goodies. Now that my computer is on board again, I need to get caught up with all these new things and do some sharing!
GraciaLouise = Gracia Haby + Louise Jennison = Australian Collage Pals
This prolific duo has such a refreshing and natural way of looking at things. There are a whole bunch of very intriguing little artists books that they display on their website. I am such a fan of artists books, and these are really cool.
Gracia does illustrative post card collages. When big animals collide with little people, I immediately start going fairy tale awol. I am always drawn to pieces that are telling a story. I do enjoy abstract artwork too, for different reason, however the child in me is appeased by artwork that contains characters, especially animals that I know and love like foxes and owls and an occasional badger.
There are lots o' places to view this pairs' imagination. They have an etsy shop, blogs, a website, and a hoot of stuff on flickr.
